Saint Dwynwen, also known as Dwyn, Donwen, and Donwenna, is the Welsh patron saint of lovers. She is also the patron saint of sick animals.
Dwynwen is believed to have been a daughter of King Brychan Brycheiniog, who lived in the 5th century. Dwynwen lived in Anglesey, and her name is still recalled in place names such as Llanddwyn and Porthddwyn.
Her church at Llanddwyn became an important shrine during the Middle Ages. The holy well became a site of pilgrimage, at which the movement of fish within its waters was believed to indicate lovers’ destinies. Saint Dwynwen’s day, Dydd Santes Dwynwen, is celebrated on January 25. Seen as something of a “Welsh Valentine’s Day”, from the 1960s it has increased in popularity as a day when cards are sent and events such as concerts or parties are held.
